All VIP Benefit tickets, which begin at $1,250 per person, include access to the after-party with talent.

Performers raising money to help ease the severe shortage of effective schools and education programs for autistic children and adults, include Will Arnett, Matthew Broderick, Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, Susie Essman, Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, Jonah Hill, Kevin James, Rosie O'Donnell, Amy Poehler, Conan O'Brien, Adam Sandler, Sarah Silverman, Triumph The Insult Comic Dog and many more talent to be announced.

"Night Of Too Many Stars" is sponsored by Toyota, Old Spice and SoBe Life Water.

The October 2006 "Night Of Too Many Stars: An Overbooked Benefit For Autism Education" raised more than $2.5 million.

"Night Of Too Many Stars" will benefit a variety of Autism education programs around the country. The funds raised will support educational facilities that have recently opened or are about to open their doors, along with those already well-established model schools that are now developing innovative programs to provide vocational and life skills for adults with autism. Proceeds will also support outreach programs that provide training and consultation to families of very young children in their homes. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds will benefit Autism Speaks, the nation's leading autism advocacy group.
